Jason Aldean vs. Sara Evans – The Showdown
Jason Aldean fans clashed with fans of Brantley Gilbert on Friday night during a Showdown between friends and collaborators. After the online voting was added to phone calls from Taste of Country Nights radio, 'Take a Little Ride' by Aldean emerged as the new champion, grabbing just under 60 percent of the votes to 40 percent for 'Kick It in the Sticks.'
Today, decide between the champion and the new single from Sara Evans. 'Anywhere' is the third single from 'Stronger,' Evans 2011 album that featured the chart-topping hit 'A Little Bit Stronger.' The upbeat love song sounds perfect on a carefree summer afternoon. She'll need support from all of her fans if the song is to top the debut single from Aldean's upcoming new album.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour. If a song wins five days in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
